Four sessions each month of pet loss support and memorial art work (last session). The registration donation is $10.00 per person and $15.00 per couple (spouse or friend). Your donation covers the cost of art supplies and a donation to SafeHaven, to support their efforts to find forever homes for their animals.
Registration opens on the 15th of the previous month.
Individual Grief Counseling
The loss of a companion animal can trigger an unexpected depth and strength of grief that takes us totally by surprise. Individual grief counseling is available via in-person appointment, telephone or internet/Skype appointments. Initial call is free; following sessions are charged on a sliding scale.
Memorial or Funeral Services
I can help you plan a memorial or funeral ceremony for a deceased companion animal, one important way to honor your animal and begin the grief healing process. The service includes planning the ceremony based on your thoughts and wishes and officiating at the ceremony. I do not charge for this service.
Compassion Fatigue Workshops
Animal care professionals such as veterinarians, veterinary technicians, humane society and rescue staff members are all susceptible to something called compassion fatigue. Working long, hard hours and often facing overwhelming medical situations, cases of abuse and neglect and unsuccessful efforts to save or re-home an animal, compassion fatigue begins when the care staff feel they have nothing left to give. I work with animal care staffs to help them combat compassion fatigue and find a new energy for the work they do.
I am empowered by the State of Oregon and my church to perform weddings. I specialize in both weddings that incorporate your pet(s) and horseback weddings, but will also officiate at weddings without animals. Cost includes pre-wedding consultation on ceremony, the wedding itself and logging all paperwork needed with the County Clerk's office.
